WWU - Music for 18 Musicians


Western’s Percussion Ensemble and contemporary music collective NowHearThis! join forces to present Steve Reich’s landmark Music for 18 Musicians. Featuring no fewer than four grand pianos, a huge percussion battery, strings, woodwinds, and women’s voices, this rarely-heard masterpiece is not only one of the monuments of Minimalist composition, but also among the cornerstone works of the last 50 years of music writ large. This is a performance you won’t want to miss.
